For all its high-tech glitz, Japan is very much a traditional nation – steeped in history and overflowing with quaint communities and ancient monuments. This trip will take you on a journey through the forests and mountains of the Japanese Alps, a scenic circle through some of our all-time favourite places. Check out magnificent castles, hike through glorious landscapes, sip delicious green tea and enjoy the prettiest towns and villages that Japan has to offer.
You will spend a number of nights in ryokan (traditional inns) in both the countryside and within delightful towns. Dinner is included for you on these evenings, allowing you to try seasonal treats and local delicacies from the homely comfort of your Japanese-style room. A truly magical experience that you are sure to remember fondly for years to come.
